Sculpture “Progressive Flow”
The sculpture “Progressive Flow” was cast on the ground outside One Marina Boulevard at the traffic junction between Raffles Quay and Marina Boulevard.
This significant art piece made by local sculptor Han Sai Por invites interactive, exploration and discovery.
Sculpture made in mess granite stone, consists of 6 blocks solid granite, weigh no less than 55 tons.
The Cultural Medallion Winner sculptor is one of the recognized Singapore foremost sculptors. She transformed the solid stone into curve and flow with a rhythmic grace.
There are voids and gaps between the blocks, it allows people to walk through in-between, indirectly encourage viewers to join and participate the spatial game.
The wave-like blocks are positioned for people to rest and seat while appreciating the graceful art piece.
Not easy to imagine how much hardship has the sculptor gone through while hewing the sculpture?
The rough texture of the stones surface signifies the coarseness of the sculptor palm.
